Thank you for your help first off, I do appreciate that.
Well, I made a mistake in my thread when I said that I used NERO. That's not what I used. I used CloneDVD and everything "appeared" to go off with out a hitch. Used a TDK DVD-RW 1-2x and burned from VIDEO_TS on a desktop folder. (That there folder contained DVD-Shrink "shrunk" movie, navigation and BUP files.)
OK, The burn goes off ok, I remove the disk and slap it into my GATEWAY 600-XL laptop, open My Computer and click on D:, it opens but no files, ?? Tried going to Device Manager/QUSI CD-RW/DVD/ SBW-241 Properties/ VOLUMES TAB and tried to "populate" no good. Status reads "No Media"
I take that same disk back to the original computer but try to read using my secondary burner LiteOn CD/R/RW and click on Roxio's Drag to Disk icon and recive a message ' no media present' ? haaaaaaagggg
Take that same disk out of that drive and put it back into the drive that created it ( PX-708A ) and vwalla presto digiation not only do I see the VIDEO_TS but see an AUDIO (empty) folder as well. Unfortunetly I never tried playing the files before I errased the desk to continue trouble shooting but I assume that they did indeed work.
I am about to try a different program using the same TDK DVD-RW disk and see what happens this time. I may try a Verbatim DVD/R at the same time and post result shortly there after.
Here's another thing. I just tried using CD-CLONE to make a copy of Linkin Park for my nephew. Put the store bought into my Lite-On and a blank CD-R into the 708A a got a perfect working copy. Though I had not the time try "seeing" the file's in another computer I assume I probably could have since it worked.
Trying again now.
I sincerly would appreciate your opinion and want to thank you for your time and help!!!!!!
